A Look Back At Crusaders In 2016 

It's been a busy year for us here at Codename Entertainment working on Crusaders. We thought we'd take some time to look back at the last year, as well as look ahead to what's still to come in 2017.

This past year has been an exciting time to play Crusaders. We've been pumping out a never-ending stream of content, including a host of new campaigns, new events, and new Crusaders.

Phew! That lists make me tired just looking at it.

So how can we possibly top that in 2017? Well, we've got a few ideas up our collective sleeves, and since this is the season of giving, we thought we'd share one of them with you now. Take a look at these bad boys:






What are these brilliant beauties? They're LEGENDARY ITEMS, a new tier of loot coming to Crusaders in early 2017. You'll be able to upgrade your existing Epic items into Legendary items in our long awaited crafting update. Legendary Items have an additional unique effect, on top of their boosted epic effect, which can be leveled up multiple times to be even more powerful! These items represent the most significant increase in Crusader power since the Talents update earlier this year.

If you want to get prepared early to deck out your favorite Crusader with Legendary items, you'll need to make sure you've got the slots you want to upgrade filled with purple epic-y goodness. We'll be releasing more details about these items and how you get them in an update closer to the release of the crafting patch.

That's all we've got for you today! We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year! See you in 2017!
